Don't you dare criticize this game. This game is a masterpiece!

Princess Daisy & Pauline both were supposed to be in this overall great game, not Princess Peach (despite not being as bad in this game).

You know, this is just Mario's (so called) FUNdamentals ALL OVER AGAIN!

22 Paper Mario: Sticker Star Paper Mario: Sticker Star

How about Paper Sonic gets tried out?

Also, Paper Peach should be replaced by Paper Daisy & Paper Rosalina.

Either way, I'd give this game 4861 stars out of 10000.

Princess Peach shall never be the lost Princess as long as she lives. So far, her most recent kidnapping was in the old game of Mario & Luigi: Dream Team whereas Princess Peach was so rude, infantile & bossy. & very cowardly for her tall height.

They need to bring back the concepts that were introduced in Paper Mario and improved upon in The Thousand Year Door (I haven't played the original paper Mario sadly, but I've seen playthroughs on YouTube). its overdue. Super paper Mario was grat too but before we see a sequel to that lets go back to the good old stuff!
This game was incredibly frusturating and BORING! And I thought Mario RPG's were supposed to have good, creative stories and a simplistic yet awesome battle system! - HeavyDonkeyKong

The thousand year door was not a bad game. Peach's voice does not effect the gameplay, the dialogue is not confusing, and the title is not stupid. The thousand year door is one of the main concepts of the game! How is that confusing? - HeavyDonkeyKong

Could you stop talking about how a game would be better if it would be replaced by a different princess. It is starting to annoy me and all princesses in the Mario series are bad and peach is worst out of all of them.

They can't stop focusing on peach. WHAT DO YOU MEAN SHE isn't IMPORTANT? That's like saying BOWSER isn't important! Peach is the one you have to save and in the paper Mario series, she has proven her strengths. - DCfnaf

Some people couldn't even get past this whole game because WHEN YOU HIT A ENEMY IT'S JUST 1 DAMAGE! The royal sticker star levels are very hard.

Are you idiots done yapping about Peach? I'm sick of hearing you complaining about her. I hate her, but no need to complain about her 24/7. - TheYoshiOverlord

When I heard this was going to be an extra feature, I was thrilled. We all know the dread of deciding who has to be Mario. Everyone is tired of being Mario. Can we be Luigi or a Toad? Nintendo screwed up with a time limit for another character. Why don't we just have a character selection in the title screen? You could be anyone you wanted to, and not just Mario or Luigi. You would get to choose from the original 4, no matter how many players.

The time limit makes it so annoying. The levels may be shorter but it doesn't make that much of a difference.

They should've actually TRIED to make this different. It's Bowser and the Krapalings again. You're still saving Peach. This is the only time I agree that you should be saving either Mario, Daisy, or Rosalina. In any other game, I disagree. Peach is SO UNDERRATED. everyone hates her and Daisy and Rosalina will not replace her! - DCfnaf

24 Wrecking Crew Wrecking Crew

This game is great! It's better than Wreck it Ralph!

Also, Wrecking Crew is too underrated! This game is cool! Memorable graphics, great music, a purple Luigi, masculinity, the bonus, the level amount's proportion, & even this game isn't confusing! It also takes place at night! :D So this game could be low on this list.

Did nobody notice, that was Disney taking this game and was made like Wreck it Ralph the movie?

That game is not really that good, it is actually bad one.

Wrecking Crew isn't as bad as everyone says, it's actually quite enjoyable. - recaller

We all Know the Mario Bros's jobs are plumbers, but in this they done construction? An early game in the NES Library Wrecking Crew was about as boring as Luigi was purple.

It's not bad guys it really is not

Dixie Kong just ruined it!

Dixie Kong looks like a stupid version of Daisy Duck.

26 Mario and Luigi: Dream Team Mario and Luigi: Dream Team

This game is absolute trash it's passed with nothing but forced tutorials and when they don't don't show up the gameplay consists of long and tedious gimmicky battles. The characters are the same old boring cast and the new villain is missed potential because he is tossed aside.

Peach may have been kinda cold, but this game still had a ton of creative characters, creative worlds and humor! In my opinion this was the last good Mario RPG so far.

Whoever put this on the list is crazy! This game is awesome... 40 billion out of 10! Only bad thing is the Giant Bowser battle.

This game was awesome why is this on here

27 Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels

This is why they're called the lost levels when one of the earlier games were released, the Japanese people thought that some of the levels were too hard for Americans. For the English release, the hard levels were taken out. These levels are known as the lost levels. Later, they were released in America seperate from the actual games. You really can't complain; These levels were made to be impossible.

What?!? This game may be hard but keep pressing on! I've finished the game an it is awesome! - HeavyDonkeyKong

There could be a Super Mario Advance 7: The Lost Levels, please.

It could be a great challenge for all those tryhards who beat the first mario game easy peasy. Although some levels could make you rage your spine out.

28 Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga

If I see other people ay anything bad about the criminally underrated presentation of older RPGs than Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story (especially the ones released in the 2nd millennium's end) I will shoot myself.

I prefer Sonic and Tails: Superstar Saga.

Scrolling Menus, the game. - mattstat716

This game is so weird - wenkernboys01

Please Never Buy This Game, It's Worse Than Hotel Mario - VideoGamefan5

30 Mario vs Donkey Kong Mario vs Donkey Kong

Awesome, underrated game with unique puzzles and visuals, with exceptional gameplay. The only thing lacking here is the story, but it's not really important in a game like this. - Cobalt

Why is this game here? I played it a couple of years ago on an emulator and it is amazing. It got clever puzzles the controls are actually fluid and the graphics are so colorful. The storyline is recycled thoug, no originality here. Saving Daisy from the mighty ape. It is like saving Peach(Toadstool) from the mighty King of the Koopas. But the gameplay is MIND BLOWING. Like literally. - OldSchoolGamer1983

31 Paper Mario Color Smash

It's Sticker Star 2 for the Wii U. (Need I say more? )

It's called SPLASH. And the game is not out yet. Though I do think it'll be sticker star 2 - DCfnaf

The game is actually good, it actually has a plot, heartwarming seqences, and a better battle system, ok the battles are still based on sticker star, but you acctually get something. I say get it later.

32 New Super Mario Bros. Wii New Super Mario Bros. Wii

For the love of God, stop whining about how you have to rescue Peach! If you hate a Mario game for that, you hate almost all of them. - Garythesnail

Frustratingly hard, 1000 times harder than NSMB DS. I also hate Bowser jr's role in this game because it is unfair he could be the leader of the koopalings although he is younger

Peach haters have the right to blame Nintendo. Nintendo originally planned Peach to be playable but they scrapped that because of how Peach's Dress to move.

Hey. Have you lost your mind? Do you hate this game? Do you think that this is he worst game ever? Is Mario a jerk? Are you stupid? If so...

33 Luigi's Mansion Luigi's Mansion

Why is this on the list? I love this game except that when you get game over you don't start with full health, instead you start with however much health you had when you last saved.

The Only Problem I Have With This Game Is That It Was Way Too Short Same Thing With Wario World. The Sequel Was Definitely Better Than This.

The only problem to this game is that it was way too short.

I did enjoy this game, but Tails' Mansion was much better.

34 Mario Strikers Charged Mario Strikers Charged

Say what now?! This game is the best game

The Mario Strikers series could've taken place in British Columbia where Next Level Games actually is. & why was Super Mario Spikers discontinued?

This game is cool but could use improvements.

It has rock music, which is almost rare in mario games, strikers charged is hardcore, and more violent, and is my favorite sport game. P.S I hear there starting to put rock music in newer mario games, my second kind of mario music is the orchestrated music in the galaxy.

35 Paper Mario

You gotta be kidding me. How the heck is this game on this list? This game was the epitome of fun on the Nintendo 64 and virtual console.

I don't want to raise a finger of objection, but let's look at this game with a bit of critique. First of, the gameplay is always important. And given this was Mario's second coming into the RPG genre, the story needed to be kept simple for new gamers. Unfortunately, that does not excuse poor writing. And its boss fights aren't that creative either. Very minor nitpicks, but it's worth noticing.

Why the heck is this game on the list?!?! This game is amazing! Take this off! - Aaa2

One of the best Mario games out there. How is this on the list? - Cobalt

36 New Super Mario Bros New Super Mario Bros

How dare you put this on the list. It's one of the best games ever

At first glance, I thought this was a remake of the original games.

Do you also like SSMB due to Peach getting kidnapped & being in this game instead of Princess Daisy?! Because most of us don't.

Boring game. New Sonic The Hedgehog is better. - SonicFan4Life

37 Mario's Early Years: Fun With Numbers
38 Super Mario Galaxy Super Mario Galaxy

This is a joke, right? If not, I will pop a cap up your ass until you take this off the list.

This is a true joke. I mean, don't look at a Mario game and there's princess peach and say this game sucks. You have to examine the whole game and see it's ups and downs in a Mario game. - recaller

Are you serious? Who the heck put this game on the list?! This game is awesome and has beautiful graphics! Take this off the list now otherwise I will beat you up ( I know that sounds harsh but SERIOUSLY TAKE THIS OFF THE LIST! ) - Aaa2

In my opinion Peach is actually a great character. Peach barely appears in this game, stop complaining, it's the highest rated game of all time. by the way Peach isn't rude here, she holds a giant festival for everyone in her kingdom to be happy and celebrate, and it's not her fault Bowser is a jerk. I know I nearly forgot she existed when I was trying to help Rosalina.

Peach is ruin this game what - wenkernboys01

39 Mario Kart 64 Mario Kart 64

Yep, just another good Mario game that fits perfectly with all of the other great Mario games

Why hate on this game? Peach wasn't whiny in this game, so we should be grateful for that! Also, Daisy could've replaced Peach because Peach is too caught up on making appearances in gaming.

This game is great, but I'd only criticize Princess Daisy's hiatus causing Peach to appear in more games than any other gaming female in gaming history, which sucks.

Why is this on the list? It is tied for my second favorite Mario kart game with Double Dash. (My favorite is Wii). This game making games what they are today. You are factually incorrect if you think this is the worst Mario game. Half of these games on the list are good! - NorthernEel

40 Super Mario 3D Land Super Mario 3D Land

This disappoints at it's finest

What do the principles apply to? It's just another game in Mario history where Mario saves Peach and Daisy from Bowser. And now 3D? My sister died from a 3DS. The goomba is stupid too, no offensive to Goomba lovers.

It's my favorite Mario game! I don't understand... - Mariomaster63

All this is is just another rush through a bunch of stuff trying to get your princess back.
